One reader believes the fantastic Nadia Sparkes is the “Trash Princess of Norwich”.

May I call the “Trash Girl” Nadia Sparkes the “Trash Princess of Norwich?”

It has awoken a niggle I have had for years.

Most motorists and others have a dustbin at home so any rubbish we collect in our cars could then be taken home and put in our refuse bins, it only takes seconds to do.

I have seen a neighbour who works for the council day after day along country roads picking up loads of rubbish. Also our ditches are filled with car tyres, TV sets, sofas, armchairs and other items.

When will people realise that when they dump their rubbish it puts more money on the council tax they have to pay. It is not rocket science; take it home or to the tip.

Three cheers to Nadia, long may she collect the trash that irresponsible people dispose of so carelessly.

Does it really take a young school girl to wake people up to stop being so lazy and irresponsible?
